Can we get a medical grade Hemp plastic? Acrylics are at least appropriate in medical applications? Intercultural lenses are all made from type of acrylic used in WW2 airplane wind screens. Opthomologist found veteran who had windscreen fragments in the eye that where only discover when preparing for cataract surgery. My father designed the surgical knot to position the New lens system. He was an opthomologist at Washington University school of medicine.
A whole generation can see. I remember when they only took your lens out. All the patient look like Mr mcgoo. The new lens changed the life for a generation now. Lens clouding is the number one cause of blindness worldwide.
It a bio plastic could be made that would be world changing. I am all for that. I remember when soy based inks where first introduced. We required them in all publication when those existed
I think the low temperature plastic used in laser printer ink is a soy plastic and a carbon black. The patent was issued to xerox. A really early use of a bioplastics. I wonder if a Hemp derived plastic would be better @neville, you way in to the university of Missouri Columbia bio plastics lab is part of the agronomy department. They are next door to horticulture now
Tell me more please.
I still need some acrylics. I can give up 99% of other plastics and have.
